10 Oct Visit from the Mayor of Geoje City, South Korea
On Tuesday, the S.S. Lane Victory received a special visit from the mayor of Geoje City, South Korea. Mayor Byun, Gwang-Young and his staff came aboard to talk about the state or our ship and it’s future. Most of you know, the S.S. Lane VIctory’s biggest claim to fame is rescuing over 7,000 Koreans from the advancing Chinese army during the Korean War. Geoje City is where the ship delivered the refugees to safety. Naturally, this was an emotional event as our ship has such a historic and humanitarian relationship with the people of Korea as members of the ship’s staff including President, David Jones, and the Mayor discussed ways to work together and strengthen the bond between the S.S. Lane Victory and the Korean community.
